Founded in 1985 by seven ministers, the Bay Area Pregnancy Center was originally established to assist and support women of unplanned pregnancies.
As much greater needs beyond the pregnancy became apparent, our role expanded to aid the existing family in developing sustainable life skills.
Today, we have three (3) locations in Clearwater, High Point & St.Pete that serve over 2,500 clients including mothers, fathers, and children.
Our Staff and Confidentiality
The Bay Area Pregnancy Center is staffed by full-time personnel and volunteers who are trained and supervised in a professional and skilled manner.
Information shared by our clients is kept confidential, and clients are treated with upmost respect and sensitivity.
What we do
Services that we provide include:
This program addresses a couple of major issues that our
clients face - finances and infant care.
We find that most of the clients we serve have no knowledge of how to budget or
stretch their funds.
Many times, when our clients come to us, they do not have food, diapers, formula, or clothes for their children.
Budgeting classes help these young women help themselves.
"Babies & Budgets" also affords future moms and dads the opportunity to work with life-like baby
dolls in learning how to care for their newborn.
By educating these young parents, their children also benefit.
Educated mothers and fathers are more prepared, reliable parents - creating a more secure living
environment for their children.
This fun and interactive program encourages client participation by offering Baby Bucks for the completion of parenting classes and lessons.
Clients can use the money they earn to purchase everything from
bottles to bassinets.
Some of our classes include: You & Your Pregnancy, Labor & Delivery, Infant Care, and Parenting
